Ram help i got 8 GB ram and can only use like 5510 - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Enabling the XMP profile is all you need to do with your RAM. There's always going to be a bit reserved and a bit in use all the time. Mine sometimes idles at 4 or 5GB, and usually has anywhere from 27-30GB cached at a time, so don't worry about a couple GB being eaten up. For the most part, if a program needs it, it can get it.

As for RAM position, just check your mobo manual youre using the correct pairs of slots so you can take advantage of dual channel; the manual will explain everything in the memory installation and/or layout section.

check what windows says in the system properties about how much ram you have, that should be more reliable a number.

right-click computer->properties

right click bottom left corner->system (windows 8/8.1)

your memory usage is fine, look at mine, and if I re-boot it all goes the other way to almost none cached.
click on the pic of mine so you can see the numbers better.
